In print ads for the motion picture 'Chicago' that first appeared on March 28, 2003, full-figured star Queen Latifah looked as if she had shed her trademark curves. However, as the syndicated tabloid show 'Inside Edition' pointed out, the Oscar-nominated actress appears to have gained them back in more recent ads. Turns out the lost weight was in pixels not pounds, thanks to computer-aided cropping of Latifah's photo by the film's distributor, Miramax.
